    “But man is a frivolous and incongruous creature, and perhaps, like a chess
    player, loves the process of the game, not the end of it.”
    Notes from the Underground by Dostoyevsky
    *Paul Keres* ( *January 7* , 1916 – June 5, 1975), was an Estonian chess
    grandmaster, and a renowned chess writer. He was among the world’s top
    players from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s.
    He was nicknamed “Paul the Second”, “The Eternal Second” and “The Crown
    Prince of Chess”. Keres was the only player in chess history to defeat nine
    undisputed world champions.

    In 1985, Thailand’s Mass Communications Organization banned One Night in
    Bangkok, saying its lyrics “cause misunderstanding about Thai society and
    show disrespect towards Buddhism.”[2] (Wikipedia)

    It’s a song about – chess. It’s hinting on western view of Thailand and its
    night life in a dialogue of one chess lover and one nightlife afficionado,
    so I guess that was the reason it was banned there. Thais are quite a nice
    and polite people, so there had to be something really insulting in lyrics
    for them to ban the song.

    And, given the fact that we were visiting Thailand at a time when
    temperatures reached 39 degrees Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) and spent whole
    days walking around and visiting temples, I beg to change the lyrics of the
    song to this:

    “Siam’s gotta be the witness
    To the ultimate test of cardiovascular fitness”

    So 80s and so genuine. Still true today. I can see the devil walking next
    to me.

    I estimate you two are 11 years apart and have both hit that ‘everything
    new sucks’ phase.
